FREE LEGOLAND FLORIDA ANNUAL PASS FOR PRESCHOOLERS!

You read that RIGHT. The free pass for Florida's three and four year olds is back at LEGOLAND for 2021. We are huge LEGOLAND Florida fans, so I'm always trying to keep an eye out for great deals to visit. This one is amazing if you've got a Florida resident three and four year old! There is so much for kids this age range to do, by the way. We loved taking Sawyer when he was four, and we went…

A beautiful story about football brotherhood – on & off the field!

One of my favorite parts of my work as a blogger is when I get the opportunity to watch movies and share my favorites with you. There’s no obligation I share or create movie nights for home centered around them. I screen all the families one I can, because I think family movie night is such a special time for our family. We’ve weaved that into our family culture and I take it pretty seriously. I love sharing inspiration with…

Set your day up for success with this new free printable!

I told you guys, I have felt like a hot mess lately. I feel like with Covid and being home so often, sometimes I feel like I have all the time in the world to complete my chores and work. Until I don’t. Then, I’m a scrambling mess. I just feel like the intention I usually have is gone! To be honest, it’s really affected my mood. I know our worth isn’t wrapped up in what we achieve, but I…

GODMOTHERED movie review & movie night!

You guys, I’m sorry. I know I keep telling you to watch Godmothered, but it is sooooo good. I was able to screen it a couple weeks back and it was torture to not share it with you guys sooner! It releases today on Disney+ so I can finally spill the hot cocoa about this adorable movie. It’s a precious movie that made me laugh and cry. My boys were HOWLING with laughter. It’s sure to be an instant classic…

Morning Notes: 12/3/2020

Good morning, ya'll. Greetings from this chilly Florida morning. I got so tired of wandering in my pajama pants, I treated myself to a lavish jogging set from Target this morning. At this point, my biggest compliant from surgery is my distended stomach. I guess they use some sort of air during the procedure and getting the gassy/bloaty/seriously uncomfortable feeling out is the hardest part. Try not be too jealous of how hot I am with my stool softeners and…

December: Editor’s Notes (Christmas Card Preview!)

Heyyyyy y’all. It’s me. How’s it going? I’m feeling like a big loser. Last week was batshit, if you’ve not been following along on social media. Let me break it down for you: we got a foster placement of a 5 day old foster baby, while I was up with him in the middle of the night and my stomach was KILLING me. I can look back now and see I had been nauseated that day. I thought it was…

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special Review & Movie Night!

The boys and I watched the cutest movie recently and I wanted to make sure you guys knew it was steaming on Disney+ LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special was the perfect little holiday film to kick off the season. I don’t want to give a ton away so I shared the details from the press release below. I will tell you there were adorable Chewbacca’s and lots of turkey legs involved. I thought it would be a perfect movie to…

Home for the holidays 2020: Fun Things To Do As A Family From Home!

I know the holidays look different so many of us this year. In a lot of ways, I feel like our experience as a military family has given us a unique perspective on spending the holidays “alone.” Flights and grad school budget didn’t always mesh so we’ve spent PLENTY of holidays just the four of us. I actually don’t mind. I kind of love it, if I’m being honest. I love being in my house with the people I love…

A Welcoming Bathroom For Every Guest!

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser, Angel Soft®. All opinions are mine alone. #AngelSoftScentedTube When we bought our house, we wanted it be a sanctuary for our family but also any guests. We’d also been wondering if we had the capacity to someday open our home as foster parents. I’d be involved in the foster care community for years as a volunteer in the margin hours of raising the boys and building this platform. We…
